… that I’m not blogging as often as I used to. This is due to a number of things, among which are work, family, writing projects, conlangs, and hanging out in places like Facebook, AW, the Conlang List, and Travian. And I’m thinking that perhaps using this website as space for a blog alone may not be the best use of my hosting dollars.
Not that I’m shutting the blog down. Never that. But I do have other interests going that might benefit from having a home online, and, after all, I have the space here.
I’ve toyed with the idea more than once of putting my conlangs online. Not terribly long ago, I even tried putting one of them in WordPress, just to see if it would work. Alas, though WP has many lovely blogging features, and though lots of folks are tweaking it to use as a general CMS for their websites, its otherwise terribly useful visual editor simply chokes on the accented and other non-ASCII characters that I need to write my conlangs out properly. And if I’m going to be forced to edit my HTML strictly by hand, I’d rather use an actual HTML editor.
Which is my long-winded way of saying that I’m going to be doing some redesigning and restructuring around here.
